Prospective voters board cargo vehicles to Kumasi to cast their ballot

With just a day to the general elections, several people within the capital are travelling back to their respective areas to cast their ballot.

A visit to the main bus terminal at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra showed many people in long queues awaiting vehicles to convey them to their destinations, confirming earlier reports indicating that people were stranded.

Many of the prospective voters who were heading to Kumasi, had boarded cargo vehicles to convey them to their various destinations.

Some of the passengers who spoke to GhanaWeb said that they could not afford the fares of the other buses hence their decision to join the cargo vehicles. Others also stated the unavailability of vehicles to transport them as their reason.

A vice Chairperson of the Circle-Anyinam station, Kofi Darko indicated that they had no option but to permit the drivers to use the cargo vehicles since they were scared of being confronted.
